there for the president, things we haven't thought of, foreign policy crises yet to come and an economy that has been sluggish. a couple of things to realize. first of all the economy has not been in that great a shape and the president was reelected nonetheless. while eventually i think voters might get fed up with his economic stewardship, they might not. secondly whether the president wants to hold up shiny objects for the press, we know the debt ceiling fight will come to a head. we know it will be a major clash. the president wants to maintain upper hand here. not so much what you or i might think is really going on. it is what voters think is going on. how they see things. he wants to maintain his image at a reasonable, rational guy versus a, band of republicans he wants to faint as extreme, out of touch and unreasonable. jon: weill look for him to, at that conversation at this news conference. david drucker. >> that's correct. that's what it is all birks we'll have to leave it there. thanks, david. >> anytime. heather: as we wait for the news conference scheduled to take place just about 11:30
unemployment. and not a total one for one correlation. in the tough economy-- >> but the union job growth much. >> i'm going to stick to topic, but i don't want people to think because it's a right to work state. i'm telling you, it's not. and for a guy that's been at a couple of protests and strikes, my dad was a union guy i'm a big supporter of unions, particularly private sector unions, not public sector unions. >> neil: that's the point on the message, is why we have a stark correlation between non-- nonunion factory jobs growing, and union factory jobs. >> in a tough economy those jobs pay more than the $3 an hour you get when you're a nonunion worker and those jobs get cut first. >> neil: adam, what do you think of that. >> well, i don't think it's any shocker, first of all, that as we've already been saying that there's been a shift. this shift has been going on for a long time. and we could, at some point we'll stick a fork in the unions because clearly, they're dwindling. having said that, there's also no shock that these organizations are going to act in their self-interest. we could
in part, difference to the sluggish economy and the challenges that the nation faces and the crowds will be smaller. george h.w. bush and george w. bush won't be here. there have been pres debts where presidents in the past haven't made it. george h.w. bush just got out hospital, which is why they won't be here. mitt romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with pers
time, their workers but that comes with a cost to the whole economy, making it less dynamic, less easy for businesses to hire more workers and at a time when we have 8% unemployment, that's not something that a lot of businesses can afford. >> now, a lot of those same union leaders say, you get what you pay for, and there are offering cut raitt salaries to workers who might appreciate the jobs, but in the end, aren't going to be very happy in those jobs. what do you think? >> i think overall people are gibbing to see that unions are out to help union worker but very often at the expense of nonunion works and that's where we're getting in trouble. the american public at large is overwhelmingly moving sort of -- public support is moving against unions, gallup found that 42% would like to see unions be less influential. they feel at if there are negotiations going on for union workers but they come at a cost for all workers, creating less opportunity for all workers and for the economy at large. what is the message. you say lab you wins every time. unions say, cheaper labor has a cos
. i wouldn't put any jeopardizing of the economy there. shows that it is a very rational, put us on a better path and i would think all the american public could support it in the senate as well. >> the house is also suggesting a policy of no budget, no pay. if lawmakers fail to do their job, the american people shouldn't pay them. bill? >> bill: what do democrats say about all of this, mike? >> they seemed to welcome the idea, the republicans sound willing to extend the debt ceiling. a spokesman for majority leader harry reid says if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase to avoid default and allow the white house to to meet its existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. they don't want the drama. >> debt ceiling in a manner that causes no concern to the economy and to global markets, that does not in any way suggest that washington is about to, you know, engage in another process that results in a self-inflicted wound to the economy. >> this afternoon, carney calls on congress to pass an extension of the borrowing limit without delay. bill? >> bill: get rea
is warning that a political deadlock over the nation's debt ceiling could damage the u.s. economy and beyond. it's estimated without the deal the government could run out of money to pail its bills as early as mid-february. the president said the idea of refusing to raise the debt ceiling is irresponsible and absurd. >> republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills are act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom for not crashing the american economy. >> shep: they say they won't support raising the debt limit and there a battle line. the debt ceiling is the maximum amount of money that the united states can borrow. the law requires congress to control and authorize any money needed to pay for federal programs. debt ceiling was introduced way back in world war one. it was meant to give the treasury department more spending at that time. wendall goler, the president seemed that he was willing to call the republicans' bluff on this thing. >> he won't collect ransom for not collecting it o
, he's got a hundred days, really maybe a year to create his legacy. we're hearing the economy, taxes, gun control, immigration, energy policy. i look for him to hit on those themes, and i look for a theme of unit. i'll look to see if he can bring boehner and the republicans over or if he's going to try to exercise in a second term as a campaign style president, one role he's more comfortable in, really, than governing. >> just briefly here because we mentioned history and we started off the show talking about president george washington's second address which was only 135 words, shortest in history. when you look over history, what do you look to as a very significant inauguration, a point of comparison, if you will, to others? >> sure. well, this one feels to me like bush's, g.w. bushes 2004 election. i look to others as more inspirational. i look at the highenned security during lincoln's reelection where he referenced god 14 times, trying to bring the country together during a civil war that was dividing our nation. i look at the depression and fdr, trying to tell people that fear
reduction, measures to help the economy, energy, we have a stacked agenda here. i think urgency in the country to address this. >> there is only one guy that can lead in washington that can find a solution to big problems and that is the president. >> reporter: so bottom line is that the president is going to try to hit the big picture themes in the inaugural address tomorrow afternoon outside the west pointed of the capital and say some of thels that will divide both sides of issue. he will save that for state of the union address when he heads back to capitol hill. >> gregg: thanks very much. >> heather: frustration preparation is under way as washington gets welcome to hundreds of thousands of guests. carl cameron is at the national mall with more on that. >> the historic nature of inaugurating the first black african-american president is much different right now. it was a worldwide celebration and there were ten inaugural balls in washington, d.c. president and michelle obama went ball to ball in a big celebration. this time around, nations the challenges the country faces

? it's hard enough getting jobs right now in this economy. veterans' unemployment is a little bit higher than the national rate. then you have people who are dealing with some type of wound as they try to get back into the workforce. do we have to curry the jobs towards their skills? >> no, i don't think so. i think these disabled veterans bring lots of skills and leadership skills as well as the breadth and depth of experience they had in the services back to local communities. what has occurred is the u.s. army in 2007 asked the national organization on disabilities to help develop a solution to this problem, and they created three locations in north carolina, texas and colorado to work very closely with these stabled veterans. it was one on one with other veterans working with veterans, primarily disabled with disabled, very career-intensive veterans centric and focused on transitioning them back into civil society. the success rate has been over 70% of those veterans after 18 months have a job or they're in some sort of educational environment to include vocational training. i

spending will eventually collapse the entire u.s. economy. this could be our last warning. lou dobbs will analyze. >> this is the president, i think, who has drunk the kool-aid. he is feeling right now high on his own power. is that true? is president obama becoming so rigid that he is unable to governor? carl rove has some thoughts. >> did you feel about bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> did you feel in any way that you were cheating? >> no. >> lance armstrong pretty much admitting he is a sociopath. is he really sorry for his doping and lying? gutfeld and mcguirk on that. >> bill: caution, you are to enter the no spin zone. the from south florida. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly reporting tonight from south florida. thanks for watching us. are we the people responsible for the chaos that is involving enveloping america? folks are responsible for the government they get. folks could have thrown hitler out they did not. russian ares fought hard for stalin. the chinese surrendered to move. the cubans allowed fidel castro to take away their liberty. the folks
'll turn to the economy now. a new warning about the united states and our credit rating as the debt battle kicks into high gear. congress has just weeks to increase our debt ceiling. fitch, a leading credit ratings agency, says a repeat of the 2011 debt limit crisis would spark a formal review of our country's aaa rating. that could mean a downgrade by them. now you might remember, s&p, a different agency, already downgraded our country in 2011. that was the first time in our history that that happened. the president is taking a hard-line stand, issuing a warning of his own to the gop. >> we have to pay our bills. congress has two choices here. we can act responsibly and pay america's bills. or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. jenna: republicans like congressman jason chaffetz blasting back against the president. >> i think the president was terribly irresponsible today. to say he will not talk about it because he is above it, but blame all of congress, in part c

the president accused republicans of trying to collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the u.s. economy. they are demanding more spending cuts before they agree to raise the nation's debt ceiling. the debt ceiling is announcing the amount of money the states can borrow. today the president responded to some republicans who say they are willing to shut down the government if the president doesn't back down. ultimately congress makes decisions about whether or not we spend money and keep the government open. if they decide they want to shut down the government in order to get their way they have the votes in the house of representatives to do that. i think that would be a mistake. >> john boehner responded the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending statement. wendell, a government shut down, is that something that really might happen? neither side is ready to blink yet. he has laid out they are ready to compromise if possible that could lead to a government shut down although probably not right away. president obama suggested right bef
